I found this recipe last year when I decided to go vegetarian (I have changed the original recipe a little to suit my taste). I use these patties all the time for burgers, wraps, pretty much anything as a meat substitute. These patties have egg and chickpeas which are great sources of protein. Here is my version of chickpea patties:
400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tsp mixed herbs
1/2 tsp chilli powder
salt and pepper
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 onion, chopped
Blend chickpeas, egg, mixed herbs, chilli, salt and pepper together to form a smooth paste. Stir in breadcrumbs, parsley and onion. With floured hands, form the mixture into 4 flat even-sized patties. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook patties for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Makes 4 medium patties.
Recipe idea from nzwomansweekly
If the mixture is sticky and difficult to form into patties, add extra breadcrumbs. If the mixture is too dry, add a splash or two of cooking oil. You can easily change up this recipe and create new flavours. These patties are also great for freezing.
